Hudson River from Boscobel
 Travel with us up and down this beautiful and historic New York river, as we walk trails and visit legendary sites that are part this scenic wonder of our nation.

  We start in Rhinebeck, where we'll be staying at the historic Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn, then head north to Hudson, a former New York state capital and whaling center, and explore the town down to the river overlook, passing one of the best collections of Federalist style architecture in the country. 

   Some of the places we'll visit are: Olana, Hudson River landscape artist Frederic Edwin Church's house and trails; Clermont State Historic Site, the home of Robert Livingston home, the man who gave the oath of office for president to George Washington, and who sponsored Robert Fulton's first commercial steamboat on the river; Mills Mansion and Mills-Norrie State Park (a 988-acre parcel on the river).
